Tile is a very popular option for bathrooms in the Bloomington, Minneapolis, Richfield area and around the country. Here at Floor Coverings International Bloomington, we often suggest tile to our customers who are re-flooring their bathroom. Many types of tile are durable, and more importantly, water resistant. Read on to learn more about the benefits of bathroom tile, and the best options for your home.
Bathroom flooring must be able to withstand damp conditions and the occasional spill. Tile is often naturally waterproof or water resistant, so you won’t have to worry about mold and mildew build-up over time. Whether the material you choose is vinyl finished with a waterproof seal, or ceramic which naturally repels water, choosing tile flooring removes the danger of water damage.
Another benefit of tile floors is that they are generally quite easy to take care of. It’s a good idea to sweep regularly and wipe clean with a relevant cleaner. Beyond that, maintenance is minimal.
Tile flooring is very durable. This is especially true if you choose a style that’s made from natural stone. Certain stone tile materials like ceramic and travertine will last in your home for years to come.
Some of the most popular tile flooring options are chosen for their beauty along with their durability. We often recommend:
- Glass mosaic
- Luxury vinyl
Many tile options now come with subtle texture to prevent dangerous slips and falls. This is an especially smart option for homes with small children or elderly family members. If you prefer the look of smooth tile, you can always add a couple of bath mats to ensure the safety of your family.
More than Just Flooring
Don’t forget that you can install tile in your bathroom in many places. Often homeowners install beautiful tile mosaics behind their sink as a backsplash, or in the shower. This is a particularly popular place for translucent and colorful tiles made from materials like glass.
